Speeding Through Neighborhoods

"Most of the drivers, I'd say about 90% really slow down and look, it catches their eye," says Missy Ruiz "Most of the drivers, I'd say about 90% really slow down and look, it catches their eye," says Missy Ruiz

One Amarillo mother took an extra step to keep her kids safe after she says dangerous drivers threatened her neighborhood.

Missy Ruiz says she had had it with speeders on her street, and found just the tool to help.

After posting this safety sign as a reminder for drivers, this mother says she saw a decrease in speed and an increase in safety.

"Most of the drivers, I'd say about 90% really slow down and look, it catches their eye. It does a pretty good job, there have been a few people who don't like it, but most of the drivers and neighbors really like it." Ruiz said.

Ruiz says the sign has given her reassurance that drivers are aware of the kids and are on alert. She says she hopes more parents take steps like this to stop neighborhood speeders.

You can pick up your own slow down sign at any Toys R Us store, for $27.99.
